Hi there! I am Ziya, a Chinese artist who currently live and work in Calgary, Canada. As a visual artist, I primarily work in drawing and installation art. My artworks are rooted in female subjectivity and the experience of migration, they explore the topics of healing, self-expression, gender issues and cultural memory.
Since the winter of 2021, I began my handmade journey in my comfort home studio. Recently, I started to turn my interest and passion into the ceramics. The process of hand-building pottery become a part of my therapeutic art, then the ceramic pieces I designed and made are where my mind meets playfulness, creativity and aesthetically pleasing. I take inspirations from daily life, the nature, thoughts and meditation.
